14 Warriors of the Gloom arrived on a day that only can be discribed as “Sunny and 70” for another edition of Dogpile. The SF was easily planted and the PAX got to work.
This is how it went down:
Slaughter Start – 10 Burpees OYO
Mosey to the circle next to the amphitheater
- Invisible Jump Rope
- Flutter Kicks
- Arm Circles
Mosey to the bottom of the amphitheater
Aken Legs – 20 Squats, 20 Box Jumps, 20 Lunges (ten each leg), 20 Split Jacks (10 each leg). Rinse and repeat with set of 30 and another set of 20.
Donkey Kick Wall – Set of 10 Kicks, 20 Kicks, and 10 Kicks
Love Hill – Partner Up, Partner Carrier down the hill completing 10 Merkins each before switching. Rinse and Repeat to the bottom
Mosey down the road
Burp Back Mtn. – Partner Up, first partner proceeding to run up and down the hill 5X while the other partner is performing burpees. The individuals continue to alternate running with burpees until 100 total burpees are completed. When finished, PAX continue to run hills until entire PAX completes.
Mosey to the Toll Booth
4×4 / Hammer Bridge – Using Boulevard Bridge, run across the bridge completing one 4×4 at each light pole. Turn around at the end of the bridge or until passed by the lead PAX. Compete 5 (2ct) American Hammers at each light on the way back.
Mosey back to the SF
Numerama, Namerama, Announcements, YHC took us out.
YHC had been looking forward to this day all week. Not only because this day was a celebration for 2 years with F3 for YHC but also having the honor of Qing at Dogpile. As The Carpenter like to say Dogpile is the “Super Bowl” of F3RVA. It also a great opportunity to see the PAX from throughout RVA that during the week we don’t get to see. YHC doesn’t know about you but sometime he feels he take this for granted.
Where else can you find 20+ men, mainly in their 30’s and 40’s, wake up early in the morning, push themselves physically at the same time lifting each other? We don’t do this because we are financially invested, we do it because we all recognize the sad clown in us. We do this because of the PAX which inspires us to be better husbands, fathers, bosses, co-workers, children, brothers, and leaders in our community.
YHC is thankful for the PAX of F3RVA for their inspiration over the last 2 year. Ok enough of the sappy talk onto the recap.
YHC arrived to unusual rare occasion around 5:35 to find AO not secured by Big Blue. Hope the training is going well Swirly. You were missed today.
Gumbo arrived shortly after YHC followed by Hutton. The PAX ended up being light today due Puppy Pile and perhaps a few fart sacking for the Royal Wedding??? Hardywood hopes this would not be true.
Mumble Chatter seemed to be heavy during the COP but as the workout went on it got lighter.
YHC thinks he confused the PAX during the Aken Legs (well at least Wilson). He meant to call out “20 reps of the following exercises” but Wilson thought he said 20 sets. YHC will just have to be clearer with the old man next time.
This is the first time YHC had included Burp Back Mtn. during his Q. This was definitely one that looked better on paper. Some of the PAX “modified” with running up/down the hill only once or twice instead of five times before switching. No worries, whatever it takes fellas!
Phonics enjoyed a little “Splash Down” on his return trip during 4×4 Bridge, as a car came zooming by, hit a puddle and soaked him along a few other close by.
TClaps today go out to Vinny who had to be a LIFO today in order to pick up his 2.0 before double dipping with Puppy Pile.
ET was fun as always. Chatter on our end of the table focused around current books being read by the PAX. Someone suggested that we should start a F3 Book Club. Lab Rat mentioned he already tried that but Hardywood didn’t like any of his suggestions since they were mostly fictional. Hardywood response: “Fiction Is Lies!”
- Opus Takeover week is next week including his VQ at Dogpile
- SOT – next week will be an exploration to Midlothian Middle School
- Memorial Day Convergance at Tredegar/Belle Isle May 28th. 7 am
- F3RVA Summer Tour begins the weekend of Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day. Who will be the first to post at every AO this summer?
